Message from the Director, Chris Ballard

In modern society Security is an increasingly important consideration. Helping the campus community stay safe and secure is something Millikin University’s Security Department takes very seriously.

Important tools in keeping safe and secure are knowledge and information. Knowledge and information prepare individuals to make informed choices to keep safe and arms them to better react if threatened.

All members of the campus community are responsible for their personal safety. At Millikin we especially focus on our students as they transition into adulthood. The information in this web site provides valuable knowledge and information to assist the student and entire campus community to take personal responsibility for their safety and make informed decisions.

You are encouraged to use the information in our web site, as well as other resources, to help you stay safe. If you have questions or comments, feel free to contact us.


The mission of Millikin University's Office of Public Safety is to support the overall University mission by assuring a safe and secure educational environment by providing professional law enforcement and security service to the campus community.

We stand by our reputation of providing security service to the campus that is:

  • Courteous
  • Confident
